iPads for Missionaries

Postby gmildon » Mon May 01, 2017 1:07 pm


My daughter has been out in the mission field for a few months now she was asked to purchase a Samsung tablet and its now not working properly. Did the church discontinue the use of Ipads and if so why, they seem to work better.

I'd imagine the big issue was cost. Plus the iPad might have made the missionaries a target for theft.

Related thread linked below which indicates the church has switched the standard from Ipads to Samsung Galaxy units. No reason is given as to why.

My daughter is getting ready to leave in about 30 days and we have been advised by her mission president to consider a service contract as they are expensive to fix.
